Search all c.l.py for my posts.  The first was 1995/09/11, and Google
says I made 1,160 posts in the last 8 years.  Only two ever use the
word troll.

And I never said you were a troll.  I said that you were labeled a
troll ("your troll mark"), and you ain't done nothing to wash it off.

Why the demand that we raise coils^H^H^H^H^Harms against the
incursion of C# / Ruby/ etc. when you youself, in the months since
you first posted here, can't make a firm decision for yourself?

As I pointed out in your previous thread, the reasons you stated were
not legitimate.  You have not corrected my misconceptions in your
follow-ups it so I remain unconvinced otherwise.
